Soft Clamping systems from MicroLoc

Microloc has now launched its new line of Soft Clamping Systems to enable customers to machine component features directly into the clamping fixtures. The new system can be efficiently clamped to the table of any machine tool and it enables the end user to rigidly hold and machine a multitude of parts in a single set-up.

Providing the ability to machine multiple parts in a single clamping operation, the benefits for the customer in terms of reduced set-up times and multiple part machining are unrivalled. The new Soft Clamping System is available in four standard sizes with a series of soft jaw sets to adapt to existing Microloc systems. Additionally, Microloc can supply the innovative new workholding station as a complete system that is ready to use on the machine.

Not only does the new Soft Clamping System enable component features to be machined directly
into the clamping elements, it allows pairs of smaller parts to be clamped securely in each jaw through the innovative compensating jaw configuration.

RotoLoc 12 clamping system

The new RotoLoc 12 clamping system from Microloc is now available to give manufacturers using rotary tables on their machining centres the ability to machine multiple components in a single clamping set-up.

With a quick-change core and a number of adaptor configurations, the RotoLoc 12 can be integrated into a rotary table, indexing station or direct to the CNC table. The robust single ended support system is extremely compact for use in machine tools of all types and sizes.

Incorporating a four-sided clamping configuration, the RotoLoc 12 permits three-face machining of four individual components in a single set-up. This innovative new development can significantly reduce set-up and machine loading and unloading times to improve productivity levels for the end user.

Using standard Microloc clamping elements, the RotoLoc 12 can be supplied complete with 4th axis of your choice to simplify integration into any machine tool. Furthermore, the rigid and robust core of the RotoLoc 12 is available in 50, 60 and 75-Series configurations to meet the diverse component ranges and sizes of the end user.

249 enquiries at MACH

What a great show MACH 2014 was, we enjoyed five days of continued interest in all our products from a varied audience.

Throughout the whole week we registered 249 new enquiries, which was a record for MicroLoc at a trade show. In addition to enquiries we also sold both Hemo and MicroLoc systems to new customers off the stand, also something that's not often acheived.

This was the largest exhibition stand in the companies history and on reflection it was a wise choice. The popularity of our product range was evident amongst a wide variety of onlookers. Our MicroLoc kit continues to buck the trend with our Hemo vices and VB Dock Lock systems quickly making an impact with precision CNC machinists. Throughout the week we also featured a Feeler machining centre manufacturing soft jaws on the stand.

A great show..
